@colinwalker Nice post. I just posted a similar “I’m leaving Facebook” post tonight. Feels good to be finally leaving the big services behind.

@colinwalker Congrats Colin 👌 It was the username for me too, but came to the same conclusion that my own website is me and only me. Micro.blog is a nice medium too though. Really enjoying the different people I find here with similar, and different, passions.

@colinwalker great post. Facebook in particular is not adding anything interesting to my life.

@colinwalker Sincere congratulations. I haven’t gotten so far as to delete my accounts (primarily because I want to avoid namespace pollution), but I wholeheartedly agree with your perspective on participation on those increasingly toxic platforms.
